Our client is a global, third party, fund manager servicing a broad range of institutional, retail and wholesale clients. Among its capabilities is a large and long-established Emerging Market Debt team. We are engaged to find a product specialist / client portfolio manager to support that team, initially on a one-year contract.

The primary responsibilities of the role are to support the team in all aspects of client engagement, and act as the interface with the wider sales, client servicing and market functions.  The appointee will oversee, or be directly responsible for, the production of all collateral material; assist with RFPs and respond to client requests for information and data.

Additionally, and depending on their level of technical and investment experience, they might also work with the sales and client service teams to represent the investment team with prospective and existing clients, acting as the subject matter expert in support of the sales effort.

Prospective candidates should have prior experience of working within an investment, sales support, marketing or client service team at an asset manager.  Experience of Emerging Market Debt, or global fixed income will be an advantage. They will be expected to demonstrate very strong writing, collateral production and presentation skills.
